Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley will not return to the role in 2015, an industry source told The Baltimore Sun. He has been reassigned, but the specifics of his new job have not been determined.

The move apparently is in regards to personal issues and not job performance, according to the report. He has a contract that runs through the 2015 season. Presley has been the team's hitting coach the last four seasons.

The Orioles had 200 or more homers in each of the last three seasons under Presley. In 2014, the Orioles were sixth in the AL in runs scored and first in the majors in home runs with 211.

The Orioles will begin interviewing for a new hitting coach this week.
